Overview

The National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) has always provided an online platform that supplied the resources required for Special Education Professional Development. Over the years, we have added   numerous courses, lectures, PowerPoint presentations, resources and e-Publications. In fact, the sheer volume of content has reached a point where another approach to maximize the primary function of professional development was needed. From this need for a better layout to allow for easier access and use of our website for Professional Development, we have created the NASET Professional Development Program (PDP). Within this area, you will find our suggestions for how to best use the content and separate menu selections broken down in a way that will direct you to the professional development you or your staff need.
